Ophthalmic diclofenac is prescribed to alleviate inflammation in the eye following cataract surgery. It’s additionally utilized after corneal refractive surgery to provide temporary relief from eye pain and sensitivity to light. Diclofenac is classified under nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which reduce swelling.

Uses and Dosage

Administer this medication into the affected eye(s) according to your doctor’s instructions, typically 4 to 5 times daily.

The dosage and duration of treatment depend on your medical condition and response to the treatment.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.

Do not wear contact lenses while using this medication unless approved by your doctor. If permitted, sterilize contact lenses as per the manufacturer’s directions and consult your doctor before resuming their use.

If you’re using other eye medications (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying them. Administer eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye.

Wait a few minutes for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery.

This medication is meant for short-term use only. Adhere strictly to the prescribed frequency and duration, as using it more frequently or for longer than prescribed may elevate the risk of serious side effects.

Do not utilize this product if it becomes contaminated (e.g., drops appear cloudy or dark). Contaminated eye medication can lead to infection, severe eye damage, and vision loss. Contact your doctor or pharmacist for further guidance.

Inform your doctor if your symptoms persist or worsen.
